Childcare offer available across Wales
The Welsh Government Childcare Offer is now available in all 22 local authorities across Wales – a year earlier than planned.
The childcare offer for Wales provides up to 30 hours a week of childcare or early education for children aged three and four. The 30 hours is made up of a minimum of 10 hours of early education a week and a maximum of 20 hours a week of childcare.
Early education is also known as ‘foundation phase nursery – it’s mainly provided by schools where children learn through play.
